Eaters in the New Yorker

From the New Yorker’s Night Life section:

Jonathan Schenke is a go-to producer for the indie-rock élite, having worked on albums for Dirty Beaches, Parquet Courts, and Frankie Rose, among others. He steps out from behind the mixing boards with this exaggerated electro-funk project, which he shares with the multi-instrumentalist Bob Jones. The duo, which builds synth-based soundscapes that would not be out of place in an early-eighties slasher flick, has released two self-titled records; this year’s is grinding and quirky, full of deep club tunes with the Korg-inflected whimsy of early New Wave bands like Oingo Boingo and the Buggles. They perform with Yvette, a raw industrial duo whose jagged tracks should come with cautionary signage.

Eaters Review in Yellow Green Red

Yellow Green Red posted a great review of the new Eaters LP in their July update.  “All the coolest, most indisputable forms of synth-friendly rock music’s past five decades are at work here… I can picture deep collections of vinyl and studio gear, all neatly organized and at Eaters’ disposal, as they map out the specific vibes each track is aiming for. All that cool stuff doesn’t mean much if you can’t write a great song, however, which is why I recommend you get you a man who can do both, namely Eaters.”  Read the full review here.
